Sonic Explorations – Day 2

Posted by Ms. Donnellan On May - 13 - 2019

Last Tuesday, the 7th of May, as part of the Creative Schools Programme pupils in the senior room took part in the next stage of their sound workshop with Ed Devane. Throughout the day the pupils investigated sound theory and editing sounds on the Chrombooks using materials they had brought to school to create different sounds. Following this the pupils worked with electronic music using an online synthesizer, an activity the class really enjoyed. To finish the workshop each pupil created their own air horn instrument. The class really enjoyed the workshops and have gained a wealth of knowledge on working with sound. We would like to thank Ed for an excellent two days of fun learning.

Djembe drums originated in Africa. They are made with a wooden shell and a head made from animal hide, usually it belongs to a goat.  Lukasz came to our school to teach us about the djembe and others drums.
